The new video from A Place to Bury Strangers for “So Far Away” makes use of the popular iPhone application Hipstamatic to create a slideshow of photos. Interesting outcome from this ... the video comes across in a square format instead of the usual widescreen on traditional 4:3 TV screen proportions. In the age of web video, one has to wonder why more people don't make use of non-traditional sizes and innovate new video sizes.
The new A Place to Bury Strangers EP is titled Onwards to the Wall and will be released on Feb. 7. The press release says the the EP "packs every bit of the searing sonic maelstrom listeners have come to expect from APTBS" but is also a new chapter for the band. Check out the MP3 of "So Far Away." It includes the patented A Place to Bury Strangers sound in it, but the studio mix-down sounds different from their previous outing ... It sounds more burned, more singed with guitar distortion. All in all, they seem to have packaged up the APTBS sound squalls without taking the life out of the music.
